  • "I have sensitive skin and can't use chemical sunscreens. I love this one, it doesn't irritate my skin, doesn't leave a white cast or have a sticky feeling. Just perfect! " in 19 reviews
  • "The BEST sunscreen ever. this is my HG sunscreen. it is a chemical sunscreen so that may turn some people off. this stuff does not make your skin more oily throughout the day and it does not leave your skin feeling dry either. it has hydrating and moisturizing agents and leaves your skin feeling baby soft. it also doesn't give you any flashback with flash photography. it has a light citrusy scent and wears extremely well underneath makeup. " in 11 reviews
  • "This is it, my HG sunscreen at last! I have naturally, very fair, sensitive, combination (but mostly dry) somewhat acne prone skin. To boot, several of my key issues include hyper-pigmentation, and aging prevention. So to find a sunscreen that not only: - protects effectively (gotta have that ++++!) against uva and uvb rays, in addition to: - not leaving a whitish cast, - nor leaving my face a grease trap with dry, flaky patches 😝 - makeup applies smoothly over it (hate when they ball up, ick!), - and it even feels good, as in, you can't feel it once it's been applied! But you know, still check ingredients for your sensitivities. Also, different skin types may = different results. Regardless, this stuff is miles away from any sunscreen I've purchased in the US. It doesn't clog my pores, but I'm careful to double cleanse for complete removal before bed. Oh also, very economically priced! 🤗" in 6 reviews

This is the lightest, best smelling sunscreen I have ever used. It is super effective and smells like lemons. I use it three or four times a day and have really nothing bad to say

All chemical-based sunscreen, so no mineral actives. It smells like lemons, which worries me since citrus oils are terrible for photosensitivity. And the size is incredibly small for the price. Despite that, this is the best-feeling broad spectrum sunblock I own, and I have several backups. I always carry one around with me to apply when it gets particularly sunny and hot, and for reapplication throughout the day. The most important thing to look for in a sunblock is that you like to wear it, and this is certainly easy to wear.

I recently purchased this for the days that I don’t wear my it cosmetics cc cream. I love that it has high spf, especially because my skin is so fair and prone to getting sunburnt. The name is true to its formula. It’s truly like a watery essence, it feels like you’re putting water on your face and it immediately absorbs into your skin. I love this suncreen

This is probably my favorite sunscreen of all time. The texture is watery and this allows the product to sink in after, allowing me to add my next skin care without making my skin greasy. It doesn’t have that sunscreen film/layer that makes your skin look weird. I feel like they could make it smell better and improve it more.

I had heard so many great things about this sunscreen, so I was certain that it would be "the one" that I would use as a facial sunscreen for the rest of my life. I hate most creamy sunscreens because they are too greasy and make my pores look huge. But this sunscreen is light and not at all greasy. It absorbs really well. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it tends to pill when layered with other skin care products and make up.

WHY HASN'T THIS CAUGHT ON IN AMERICA?! Western sunscreens are just so unpleasant to apply. Greasy, leaves a white cast, sticky, name it. I've hated applying sunscreen for these reasons. This is a GAME CHANGER. Goes on like a refreshing gel-cream, dries totally matte and literally feels like nothing on the skin. Works really well under makeup as a last prep step. Love this stuff. I'll never use western formulations again!

This sunscreen is light enough for my face, and I feel like it really protects it. I got this off Amazon, and the bottle is in Japanese, so I had to trust the ingredient list online, but I'm glad I did! Layers over makeup well, doesn't break it down, and smells nice!

I love this sunscreen! It feels like nothing when it's under all your makeup. The texture itself is smooth and gel like. My only problem is that it seems to lather(?) and build up when you're working it into your skin. Other than that, once you've put it on, it feels light. It doesn't even bother me too add this on top of my makeup through the day.

This sunscreen is great! I like how it’s not sticky after application. It’s very lightweight on my skin. I have a very sensitive skin and I would usually breakout when I try new products but not on this one. It’s also great because it offers better UVA protection. Overall, I like this product! 👍🏼

Does this sunscreen have zinc or titanium dioxide as an active ingredient? My husband was told he needs to have at least one of those ingredients for his sunscreen.

I love this product because it’s light on the skin, doesn’t leave a white cast or any residue, and is relatively inexpensive especially if you buy it in bulk. However, the chemical ingredients have come to my attention and was wondering if anyone has found a more natural ingredient sunscreen just as good as this one
